Exciting Innovations from Dunkin’ Donuts

Teaneck—A kosher Dunkin’ Donuts has been a part of the lo­cal kosher food scenery since 1996, when Mirek Musial first estab­lished the eatery as a kosher establishment in The Plaza, a strip-mall anchored by Walgreens on Teaneck Road.

Because of excellent sales figures in Musial’s first kosher Dunkin’ Donuts store, in Elizabeth, NJ, he reasoned that the suc­cess would translate to Teaneck, another town with a large Jew­ish population. Musial was right. Teaneck’s kosher Dunkin’ Donuts has been open and thriving for the past 18 years.

Agnieszka Blandadudacyzk has a long history with Dunkin’ Donuts. She has been a manager at the Teaneck store since 2005. Approximately two years ago, she bought into the store and is now co-owner of the establishment.

Though neither of the owners is Jewish, they haven’t had trouble keeping kosher; Blandadudacyzk says that their mash­giach “comes around and looks at everything. He checks all the new products from Dunkin’ Donuts to make sure that they’re all kosher.” The mashgiach comes in three times a week, she added.

Blandadudacyzk was asked if there were plans to expand by establishing a drive-thru window at the store: “It’s impos­sible to have a drive-thru here,” she said about their current location. However, “we are thinking about buying another location like a gas station.” They are looking for available space in Teaneck, she said.

Blandadudacyzk said that another plan in the works is a partnership like one in many other Dunkin’ Donuts fran­chises. She and Musial are looking for a Baskin Robbins ice cream franchise with which to partner.

Until then, it looks like we will all have to continue to get a little exercise in order to get our sugar and caffeine fix.
